Study the School's U.S. Curriculum

As promised, here are is the School's brief American syllabus. If you, like me, live west of the Mississippi (OK, St. Louis makes the cut), you may give the band an F for their course. Take a deep breath and keep in mind touring America isn't like covering a European country. You can't really do it successfully in two weeks. All this does is make it official. It's time to book a flight and get your tickets to NYC Popfest. You'll have the added bonus of seeing the Monochrome Set, the Bats and Close Lobsters too. This might be the only time I have envied (or will ever envy) Salem, Virginia. If you haven't heard one of my favorite bands, check out some of their videos below after the band's itinerary.
